An explanation of web space hosting

The most elemental and widely availed of sort of web hosting is the shared web hosting solution. It constitutes a way to host your web site without having to understand much about programming and administrating a web server. What's more, it's also the most economical form of webspace hosting and it's very affordable for anybody. However, what is shared web hosting?

What is shared site hosting?

As the name hints, the shared site hosting solution is a sort of service where a lot of customers share the system reserves of one and the same hosting server. This goes to say that all hosting server ingredients like CPU, hard disks, RAM, network interface cards etc. are allocated among the users whose accounts are on that very same hosting server. This is mostly rendered tenable by creating different accounts for the different customers and assigning given limits and resource usage quotas for each of them. Those restrictions are assigned so as to restrain the users from meddling with each other's accounts and, of course, to prevent the web hosting server from overloading. Usually, shared hosting clients do not have root-level access to the hosting server's config files, which primarily denotes that they cannot access anything else on the web hosting server apart from their own personal shared hosting account. The site hosting features that each account may use are set by the web hosting vendor that possesses the web server and by the particular web hosting package. That leads up to the second vital question:

How are the shared web hosting servers divided among the users?

Web hosting companies that supply shared webspace hosting services usually have various webspace hosting plans. Those packages contain diverse quotas of site hosting resources and specifications, which in fact determine the limitations that a site hosting account will include. The client may pick between the different web hosting plans and sign up for the one that he deems will suit him best. The web site hosting package will then define what restrictions the client's account will involve, once set up. The costs and the specifications of the hosting plans are fixed by the particular web hosting supplier. Based on the politics of the distributor, the shared site hosting solution falls into two types - the free hosting solution and the popular shared solution, currently very famous among "cPanel hosting" merchants as a cloud web hosting one. It's not possible to declare, which one is more preferable, since they are quite different from each other and they actually are subject to the marketing tactics of the particular corporation and, of course, the demands of the particular client.

What is the distinction between the free of cost and the normal shared web hosting service?

Of course, the essential difference between the free of cost and the paid service is in the quantity of features that they involve. Free hosting providers are not able to maintain a large amount of hosting servers, therefore, they simply host more customers on one single hosting server by decreasing the amount of system resources provided by the accounts. This will be efficient only if the web hosting servers are monitored and dealt with properly, because the large number of accounts may make the server crash over and over again. The majority of the free web space hosting firms, however, neglect the quality of the service and as a result, it's very hard to come across a free of cost web hosting service that's actually worth the effort. The top free hosting suppliers usually offer free technical support even to the free web hosting clients, since they want their web portals to expand so that they subsequently move to a paid webspace hosting package, which includes more web space hosting resources. Such corporation, for instance, is, which is one of the biggest and oldest free website hosting companies in the world.

At the same time, established shared web hosting companies like AIDA Host, for instance, are able to keep lots of servers and as a result, they are able to provide much more feature-rich site hosting plans. Of course, that influences the cost of the webspace hosting plans. Paying a higher fee for a website hosting account, however, does not automatically mean that this package has a finer quality. The most optimal services are the balanced ones, which involve a fee that corresponds to the real service which you're receiving. The top-notch website hosting providers that have been around for quite some time are presenting their prices and plan specs in a realistic fashion, so that the client may familiar with what in fact he is getting. Also, some of them offer a free extra with the web site hosting package, like the 1-click applications installer, accompanied by 100's of gratis website skins that are furnished by 'AIDA Host'. Such web site hosting suppliers do worry about their good name and that is the reason why if you select them, you can rest confident that you won't get deluded into purchasing a plan that you cannot in fact use.

What should I anticipate from a shared webspace hosting solution?

The shared hosting service is best for individuals who want to host a basic web site, which is going to use a small or medium amount of bandwidth every month. You cannot anticipate, however, that a shared hosting account will last you a lifetime, because as your business expands, your website will become more and more demanding. Therefore, you will have to ultimately move to a more feature-rich site hosting service like a semi-dedicated server, a VPS (aka a private virtual web hosting server, or VPS), or why not a dedicated server. So, when selecting a website hosting supplier, you should also think about how they can be of service to you, otherwise you might end up transferring your domain name manually to a separate provider, which can create website problems and even extended downtime for your site. So, selecting a hosting vendor such as 'AIDA Host', which can present you with the required domain name and hosting services as you grow bigger, is crucial and will spare you lots of frustrations in the long run.
